Qualifications to be a teacher. - February 25th 2010, 01:28 AM

Soo, next year is my Grade 11 year, so I have to figure out what I'm gonna do with my life.
One career option of mine is a high school drama/english teacher.
What classes should I have to take next semester...?
English and drama, OBVIOUSLY... and I'm also taking a Leadership course which I'm sure will help.
But what other stuff should I be looking into? And what should I do when I get out of high school? Collage or university?
Any information would help!

You'll need a teaching certificate, which generally takes about 1 year to complete along with minimum of a Bachelor's degree in the area you wish to teach. So in total, you're looking at between 4-5 years. Certain provinces may have specific requirements, such as taking "core" courses, which includes English and another course, which there are many options for. I cannot speak for all universities and colleges but many allow you to complete your English major or specialist in order to teach, so you'd get your teaching certificate concurrently.
